Re: Was Just told I had this

Forums General Melanoma Community Was Just told I had this Re: Was Just told I had this

    Well thanks everybody. They are not sure if a mole removed from next to my ear years ago that was said to be clean hand cancer. The doctors are asking for the pathology reports. I keep reading all this stuff and I just realized that I forgot to add that I also suffer from Ulcerative colitis. I have been on Remicade for almost 8 years. Now this is just another thing in the string. I face everything with a positive outlook but the doctor I had made it difficult. He broke the news over the phone and when I questioned why he got irrate saying he knew what was best for me and I should just listen. Then nothing for several days. I have now been contacted by MDA and will go the sept 2nd. I am happy and nervous. I want this out of my body and I want to know what I can do to keep it gone

     

    Sounds like it will come back but this is a fight I intend to we

     

    Thanks everybody
